Auschwitz Birkenau Memorial and Museum Guided Tour
Auschwitz Memorial Museum was founded in 1947 and added to the UNESCO’s World Heritage List in 1979. Journey to Auschwitz takes over an hour. Travellers will start the tour with a documentary film about the history of the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp - the symbol of the Holocaust and Nazi crimes committed against Poles, Romani and others. The tour comprises two parts of the former concentration camp, Auschwitz I and Auschwitz II-Birkenau (approx 1.5 hours each). At Auschwitz I visitors will see the Nazi camp established for men and women. It was the place where criminal experiments on prisoners were conducted, and the place of executions by shooting. Travellers will then take a 3-kilometre bus ride to Auschwitz II-Birkenau. Birkenau was the largest concentration camp that held over 100,000 prisoners. Today, visitors can see preserved ruins of the gas chambers and places filled with human ashes, as well as crude barracks for prisoners. After the tour, visitors will return to Krakow.
